I was on the pill for 10 years. My doctor prescribed it for normal teenage pimples. My mom and I didn't know better then. I have been off it for 4 years now but I am still feeling its consiquences. It has destroyed my hormones, leaving me irregular with heavy mensus, acne, water retention and PMS through the roof. I am currently working closely with a homeopath to detox myself of the carcinogens of the pill and to re-balance my hormones.
If i could tell my 16 year old self one thing I'd say "do not take that toxin hormones!" I would shout it from the mountain tops!!!
